Our History

Over the last 50 years Inaash has trained and empowered over 2000 women in refugee camps across Lebanon.  It currently provides work for over 400 women.  At the heart of each Inaash piece, in its stitches, colors and motifs, is the history of Palestine as expressed in its distinctive visual heritage – embroidery.

Inaash is a Lebanese organization producing the finest quality hand made artisanal products.  Our trademark is iconic, intricate traditional embroidery. Our selection includes abayas, coats, jackets, shawls and dresses, along with cushions, tableware and other household accessories.

Today the Inaash in-house designers collaborate with local and international artists and designers to update its designs.  Those who have contributed to developing the Inaash range include Nada Debs, Rabih Keyrouz, Dina Kamal, Nafissa, May Daouk, Mira Hayek, Creative Space Beirut, Ecru Online, Omar Nasser and Jason Steel.

Drawing on Inaash’s remarkable archive of samples, culled from traditional dresses and costumes, the designers adapt centuries old stitches and patterns to the 21st century aesthetic, to catch the eye of discerning collectors across continents.

Inaash products have been featured at the Smithsonian Museum, in the British Museum, the Pompidou Center in Paris, Tate Modern, London, Al Sadu Museum Kuwait and in exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, Houston, Paris, London, Abu Dhabi, Al Manama, Dubai, Doha, and Riyadh.
